Booking Hyatt Hotels With Points
The World of Hyatt loyalty program still utilizes an award chart, setting it apart from other hotel chains. Hyatt’s award chart is divided into 2 buckets: all-inclusive and hotels. All-inclusive resorts operate on a Category A through F system, where awards start at 12,000 points per off-peak night and up to 58,000 points per peak night.
Hotels operate on a more standard award chart, with Category 1 through 8 properties. The lowest-cost Category 1 properties start at 3,500 points per night (off-peak), while Category 8 properties start at 35,000 points per night.
World of Hyatt points aren’t easy to earn but are considered some of the most valuable hotel points out there. If you’re interested in earning Hyatt points, you have several options, from opening 1 of Hyatt’s co-branded credit cards to transferring Bilt Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards to the program.Hot Tip:
